Media And Entertainment Litigation

The legal heart and soul of the entertainment industry is intellectual property. All original creative works — music, films, artwork, clothing designs, literature, architectural design and software, to name a few — are protected under U.S. copyright law, regardless of whether their creators have filed registrations with the U.S. Copyright Office. Trademarked brand, slogans and celebrity likenesses are also subject to important protections.

For those in the media or entertainment industry, the body of original works, branding and image that make up your intellectual property can be a gold mine. On the flip side, theft or infringement of your intellectual property rights can jeopardize your career and cost you millions. It is important to protect your rights and take action whenever your intellectual property rights are under fire.
